Brilliant 22-year-old American violinist Randall Goosby won First Prize in the 2018 YCA International Auditions and five special awards, including the Sander Buchman Prize sponsoring his New York debut. As a ‘Sphinx Virtuoso,’ he has soloed with the Cleveland and Nashville Symphonies, among others. Coming up is a performance of Bach’s Double Violin Concerto with his mentor Itzhak Perlman with the Grand Rapids Symphony (MI).

“The most remarkable performance of the evening, by Randall Goosby, was also one of the most refined. He not only delivered the music flawlessly, but also displayed an astonishing degree of musical maturity.” (The Cleveland Plain Dealer)
